Description


Jacinta V. White's Resurrecting The Bones will not let southern African American history be silenced by re-zoning, gentrification, and useful forgetfulness. White's poems are Dr. Sheila Smith McKoy's "limbo time" in action. Each poem is a personal and historical guide through the richness and fullness of black southern culture and the mighty black church. White's language is hard-hitting, tender, and cosmic. Her images are sharp and unforgettable. The poems are narrative with a lyrical pulse that pulls the reader deeper into the rural landscape. A must read. --Tyree Daye
